Manchester United ready to sign Justin Kluivert in summer move

The Daily Mail reports that Manchester United are in advanced talks to sign Ajax teenage attacker Justin Kluivert in the summer.

The 18-year old striker is the son of Patrick Kluivert, former Ajax and Barcelona star forward, and Dutch international, and currently Director of Football with Paris Saint-Germain.

A bid of £10 million plus various add-ons is said to be ready to offered to the Dutch club once the transfer window opens again in July, with Jose Mourinho wanting to bring to United a player he has been tracking for years, having known the teenager from the time that he and his father worked together during their time at Barcelona.

Justin, following in his father’s footsteps, made his senior debut for Ajax when he was 17, and has made 42 appearances in all competitions for the Amsterdam club, scoring 8 goals. He has also represented the Netherlands at all levels up to the under-21 international level.

Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
